Two drivers are driving side by side. They encounter a traffic jam. One navigates the obstruction with calm and cool logic. The other is the opposite – yelling profanities, gesturing and honking the horn. Why the difference? There are basic aspects that affect one’s driving and understanding these will better prepare instructors who teach the next generation of drivers.

(SATURDAY 12:30-2:00) "DRIVING AGE VS. EMOTIONAL MATURITY" John Clark, WTSEA Board Representative ESD 105
How do we close the gap between driving age and emotional maturity? Students must come to the realization that just because they turn 16 does not mean they are ready to drive. This workshop will address these issues. Ever wonder why insurance companies and car rental agencies make age 25 a determining factor? Information based upon solid research will be given about brain development and the connection between emotional maturity and social media. Most of the seminar will consist of 10 points of emphasis that TSE instructors can and should instill in their students to help them realize the seriousness of the driving privilege. Questions will be also be given that can be used in students' own self-evaluation.
Four goals (or what participants can leave with):
Develop more awareness of the lack of emotional maturity related to teen driving.
To present 10 points of emphasis for closing the gap between driving age and emotional maturity.
To realize the connection between emotional maturity and social media as a major cause of driver distraction.
To provide TSE instructors with questions that can be used in the classroom and behind-the-wheel to aid students in doing self-evaluation of their own emotional maturity level.
(SATURDAY Workshop) “KEY R.O.W. LAWS - GETTING ON THE SAME PAGE” Alex Hansen, TSE Coordinator, Eatonville S.D. and CWU Adjunct Professor
Last year there was a cancellation in the agenda so Alex stepped up and spontaneously presented a workshop on Arterials. It was well-received, but Alex had much more material to cover. So, he promised to come back and present again this year. He wanted to do a three-hour Friday workshop on teaching the right-of-way (R.O.W.) laws so that we are all teaching them uniformly. But, alas, along came the passage of ESHB 1481, creating an urgency to address the implementation of this new law. Alex will be presenting that workshop to TSE Coordinators. Nevertheless, in this mini-breakout session, Alex will take on a few important concepts that will help us all “get on the same page” of teaching the R.O.W. laws uniformly and effectively. If well-received, be sure to let the Board know you still want Alex back for more next year!
